Liberal-Conservative Hypocrisy on Immigration

There is no area that is more rife with hypocrisy among both liberals and conservatives than immigration. When it comes to immigration, it seems that liberals and conservatives are competing against other for title of “Most Hypocritical.” For months, liberals have been condemning Donald Trump for his plan to build a gigantic wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. They say it ...

Do You Want a Peaceful and Prosperous Society or Not?

Every Sunday at my church, we are exhorted to pray, among other things, for peace in the world and for the men and women who serve our nation — i.e., the military and the CIA .
